Description: Open since 1995, the simple cooking and warm, friendly atmosphere has allowed The Mustard Seed to become one of Inverness’s favourite restaurants. The Location on the banks of the River Ness in a converted church building is simply stunning and helps create the wonderful ambience. The transformation from disused church to restaurant created a unique space; with a double-height ceiling and magnificent open log fire. Many of the original period features were retained and combined with a mix of natural and modern finishes. The addition of the terrace on the top floor allows alfresco dining and uninterrupted views of the River, another amazing asset for the restaurant.

“Great food and and beautiful restaurant”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

This was the best meal I have had in a restaurant for a while. Great variety and everything was very well cooked and presented. The flavours were brilliant. We went before 7pm and the prices were excellent.

“Good food”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

This was our 2nd visit to the Mustard Seed, but the first time for our guests. We had a nice table by the window, but I do feel there are to many tables in the place.
We very much enjoyed meal, 3 had the steak and 1 had the fish. Our only fault was that our waitress seemed to be in a hurry to serve us

“Better than before ...”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

My last two experiences of the Mustard Seed were not good and it was with some trepidation that I went along to join family for an early evening meal on a Friday night. There is certainly plenty of choice - perhaps too much? - and I have to say that our waitress was fabulous! We had some children with the party and she was great with them, in particular my cousin's younger daughter so 10 out of 10 for that. She also did a good job of serving all of us (although one meal was forgotten but brought out fairly quickly). The food however wasn't fantastic. My own choice of steak was perhaps my own fault for asking medium to well done as I think they only heard the "well done" bit and my cousin's venison which I think was supposed to be braised required a steak knife to get through it. So, top marks on service, low marks on food.

Reviewed October 29, 2012

booked a table for two on the 27th oct.as usual excellent experience from the minute you step inside to the minute you leave.we have a 30 second rule,if ignored in one minute we walk but in the mustard seed a warm welcome greets you no matter how busy they are.coats taken and a waiter/waitress ready to take your drinks order and food is quick and very best of local produce.
we had the most lovely waitress attend to us sorry we didn't get her name.really nice ambience.
thank you all once again for a lovely evening.x

“Generally good”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

We had 2 course lunch from the set price menu, plus deserts, plus wine for under £30. This was good value for generally good food and good service. We both had tomato soup for starters and chicken for the main. The soup was a real disappointment. It looked like, had the consistency of and tasted like tomato puree straight from the tube. The main course chicken with garlic mash and root vegetables was altogether better, so we stayed for excellent deserts too. The same menu was on offer for the early evening, but at a higher price!
